have two identical twins and one of them has multiple sclerosis, the chances are 30% that the other one will have it. so there clearly is a genetic contribution to this. and if you have additional family members, the incidence will rise. the target of the disease is the myelin sheath. so many axe ons in the brain are-- axeons in the brain are covered with this fatty sheath that is designed to enhance conduction along the axeon. there are some unmyelin ated axeons but there are lots in the nervous system and if you attack that in an autoimmune disorder like multiple sclerosis, you can slow and ultimately stop conduction in those axeons. because myelin axeons are throughout the brain, you can affect many different parts of the brain as a result of the autoimmune disease. if you hit the optic nerve you can have transient blindness. if you hit the spinal chord or the brain, you can have sense ory disturbances, tremors, you can have weaknesses in an arm or a leg. these episodes vary in duration. they can last for days. they can last for weeks and they can last for months. but you can have pe
